If you see a bunch of buildings around Colorado lit up in green lights this week it’s probably not leftover Halloween decorations or even early Christmas lights. The reason is actually to honor our countries veterans. 

It’s part of Operation Green Light, which shows support to veterans by lighting buildings green from Nov. 6-12.

Douglas County will be glowing green this week. In Castle Rock, the Philip. S Miller Building, Wilcox Street Building and the Justice Center will all be green.

Arapahoe County will also have green lights. The county encourages residents to participate by changing a light bulb in the house to green and posting it on social media using the hashtag #OperationGreenLight.

“‘Operation Green Light’ shines a light on the immense sacrifices our Veterans have made,” said Commissioner Bill Holen in a press release. “We hope to see participation across the county, so our veterans know we appreciate their service and that we have their backs with supportive programs and services built specifically for them.” 

This program is not just in Denver, it’s across the nation. The green light shows veterans that they are seen, appreciated and supported.
